Ponytail Palm Stump

This plant is not a palm or a tree, it is in the Agave family. It is technically a succulent believe it or not! This plant has a gorgeous trunk which stores water. The Ponytail Palm does well in low light indoors and likes semi dry conditions. Let the soil dry out before watering them again. The trunk and it’s curling leaves is how it gets its name! Virtually indestructible.

The Dirt

Native to Eastern Mexico. This plant is slow growing and is perfect for beginners. Ponytail Palm purify the air! Rotate your plant periodically so all angles grow evenly. Ok to put this plant outside during the sunny summer. 

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water every three weeks. Let soil dry up before watering. Feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry, wait two days. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Friendly

Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).
